CLA Answers Your Child Care Program Questions
What kind of childcare programs are available to them?
Creative Learning Academy welcomes children of multiple ages so we can take care of them while you are at work, before and after the school day. Outside of our school-age childcare programs, we offer S.T.E.A.M., which introduces their growing minds to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Familiarizing them with these areas of study at a young age helps their developing brains and gives them a head start when they leave us and transition into the traditional schoolroom. We also have the Village Indoor Gross Motor equipment to assist in getting them active. We practice running, crawling, and jumping. Our Dramatic Play childcare program will help your child become comfortable expressing their imaginations, feelings, and creativity. We provide them with costumes, props, and puppets to really help them get out of their shell.
How do you break up the age groups in your childcare programs?
We separate our children into different groups based on their age. We understand these children all have different needs and wants. They also have special requirements when developing mentally.
· Infants Program – Children from 6 weeks to 1 year old are assigned a primary caregiver.
· Toddlers Program – For toddlers 1 to 2-1/2 years of age, we combine structure with playtime. Each child is also assigned a primary caregiver for special attention.
· Preschool Program – We encourage independence in critical thinking and problem solving for children 3 to 4 years old.
· Pre-K Program – In children 4 to 5 years, we advance skills in core pre-academic areas such as literacy, math, science, and more.
· S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) – We cover a wide range of academics.
· The Village Indoor Gross Motor Skill Equipment and Dramatic Play
How can I be sure it is safe for your staff to care for my child?
All of our staff members are thoroughly vetted, and we place a premium on ensuring they are a perfect fit for us, and more importantly, your children. Our teachers have a passion for helping your children learn and develop, they are not at Creative Learning Academy just to collect a paycheck. Our goal is to get your child prepared for the next steps in their educational career and to have them show up excited and ready to learn! Creative Learning Academy has the number one curriculum in the state, and we maintain this by only hiring quality teachers who help give us a fresh eye on education and help us improve to meet the needs and wants of all Succasunna, NJ children.
Is weekend care available?
We are not open on the weekends, as our hours are 6:30 am-6:30 pm, Monday through Friday. We are available to take care of children if their school is on a seasonal break to help you keep them on a routine and have a safe space to go while you are at work.
Will you prepare my child for transitioning into a real classroom?
All of our programs are designed with your child in mind. We know that infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and pre-kindergarteners in our childcare programs will transition to a full-time classroom setting eventually. We not only work to jumpstart their educational career, but we also want them to be the best they can be once there! Our teachers begin helping them as early as six weeks old with basic motor skills. Once they start Pre-K, we offer S.T.E.A.M. to cover a wide range of academics and introduce them to new ideas. Our Dramatic Play also allows them to express themselves and help open up their creativity.
Do you provide snacks, and should I pack my child a lunch?
Creative Learning Academy provides healthy snacks twice a day for children, but we expect parents to pack their child’s lunch for the day. We do not have a kitchen at our facility, but we make sure to offer healthy snack options for your children. It is also our hope that they will be fed breakfast before you drop them off for the day. If you have an infant still using breastmilk, we are happy to store this for you as well as make sure they are fed at the appropriate times. Please let us know if there are any specific allergies we should be concerned with and we would be happy to accommodate.
Can I tour the facility before signing up?
Absolutely! We hope you reach out to us so that we can set this up for you. We even have a virtual tour on our website to assist if you can’t make it in during our hours. That trip takes you through our entire facility, room by room, and lets you discover and research every inch of the Creative Learning Academy.
